Getting dolled up for Eagles game day and tailgating is half the fun! Ever notice the football player eye black under their eyes? Football eyes with the smudgy black lines offer authentic flavor for an on-trend appearance in the parking lot or stadium. Add this fun vibe to your look for Super Bowl or any day.
How to Get Football Player Eye Black
Football player eye black offers such a fun look for all the girls going tailgating. (Do guys wear it too? I’m all for it – such a fun look!)
Home Team Theme NFL Eye Black
The Philadelphia Eagles eye black stickers are a popular choice to kick your look up a notch. These couldn’t be easier with a peel-and-stick design. So cute, so fun – gotta try it!
As far as the pre-made Philadelphia Eagles football eyes, you can rock either Eagles logo eye black or simply the word EAGLES across the black patches.
College football fans should definitely get in on this fun game-day accessory, too! It’s the perfect vibe for your weekend.
(Annnnnnd, if you’re a fan from an NFL opponent of the Eagles, you can find football eye black designs for your boys too. I’m obviously a die-hard Philly girl but rather than tell ya to get lost, I’ll help a girl out. 🙂 It’s all good in the world of football, friends, and tailgating.)
You can find the Eagles eye black quickly and easily online at Amazon. You might be able to find it locally at your favorite sports fan store or even at Party City in their football and sports section.
Most of the time I’ve found these sell out locally. Still, you can look online, call before you go, or just make it easy on yourself and order with Free Prime Shipping ahead of time.
DIY Football Player Eye Black
Of course, eye black stickers aren’t your only option. You can just smear on real eye black, too. (It’s way cheaper, but maybe just not as cute…)
Simply smudge on a black streak under each eye to create the same kind of look. Black lines under eyes are way easier to achieve than you might think. The sticks are super portable, too!
How to Make Your Own Eye Black
If time is of the essence and you can’t order online or run out to the store, you can always try to wing it with something you have on hand.
Yes, warrior paint for your eyes is something you can make at home.
A smudge of charcoal beauty mask ought to do the trick! Other black makeup could work too – just be gentle on your skin. Or go old school high school style, skip the black under your eyes and write on your favorite player’s number with eyeliner!
How Was Eye Black Created in the Past?
Did you know old timers used things like burnt cork or even shoe polish to create their football eyes before commercial eye black became a thing? Thankfully, today even the fans have the best options for fun football eyes using real and stick-on eye black.
For a really fun twist, you can get customizable eye black that comes with a white pencil to draw or write on your own messages, cheers, and jeers.
Make your football eyes stand out even more with mascara, eyeliner, or eye shadow in your team colors. Use the eye black as an add-on to your favorite game-day makeup looks. Have fun, look great, and enjoy the game! 🙂
